Can a Bathroom be Charming?

|'Before' Bathroom - definitely not charming!|

I'm thinking about a classic hexagonal floor. I've pinned a dozen of them on Pinterest, but like this one the best. It's not too busy, but still reflects a vintage style. Sadly, I can't find a pre-made black and white tile anywhere - everything is out of stock. So I'm going to have to make my own. Yikes! It's a bit daunting and I'm sure I'll regret it as I spend hours on my hands and knees figuring out where the black tiles should be placed, but it will give the room that vintage style I'm going for.
What else? Well, I'm going to use the same sink as the last bungalow. I love its graceful curves and antique styling. But since it doesn't provide any storage space, I'll include a built in cabinet for lots of storage.
The sink wall will be wallpapered in this paper. It's a very subtle pattern, but I love it!
Finally, we'll install a classic white tub with crisp white subway tile with a bit of black as an accent.
So what do you think? Will it be charming?
